The Spline Select modifier passes a sub-object selection of shapes up the stack to subsequent modifiers. It provides much of the same set of selection functions available in the Edit Spline modifier. You can select vertices, segments, or splines, and you can change the selection from sub-object level to object level.

This modifier is similar to the Mesh Select and Poly Select modifiers, except for the type of sub-object components.

Procedures

To use the Spline Select modifier:

  1. Create a multi-spline shape.
  2. Apply a Spline Select modifier.

    By default, the Vertex sub-object level is active.

  3. If you wish to work at a different sub-object level, use the modifier stack display to choose it.
  4. In the viewports, select vertices, segments, or splines.
    TipYou can transform the selection using an XForm modifier or Linked XForm modifier.
